On Tuesday, Howard announced an all-star tribute to music icon David Bowie, which will premiere on Feb. 9. The special, which will kick off at 10 p.m. ET, is hosted by producer Tony Visconti and features more than 20 artists covering some of their favorite Bowie tunes.

“We’ve put together this spectacular tribute to David Bowie featuring 25 brand new covers of Bowie classics,” Howard explained, praising Stern Show staffer Steve Brandano who spent more than a year putting the project together.

From Daryl Hall’s take on “Fame” to Peter Frampton’s live performance of “Rebel Rebel” to Todd Rundgren’s cover of “Life on Mars?” the tribute includes a wide array of talented performers offering their interpretations of the timeless classics. Preview tracks from Frampton, Hall, and Lisa Loeb on Rolling Stone.
